Re: trouble switching to basic mode in Gmail


Dan Beaver
 

Using Firefox I do not see the button/link at all.  Even if I do a screen search it doesn't come up with a hit.


I used to have basic mode as my default before I did this clean up activity but now it always comes up in standard mode.  I thought there was a choice in settings for making it always basic mode but I have searched through settings and can't find that either.


When I did a google search I found a page that talks about it but only gives 2 links, one for using standard mode and the other for using basic mode.  It doesn't save this change at all, you have to use them every time if you go to that page.


This is getting super frustrating.


Thanks.

It is at the very top of the page, the first line.  At least that's where I see a button that says Basic HTML View using Chrome.  My experience, however, is that this button doesn't work reliably to change the view when you open the web page again.  If I switch to standard view, I have to press the button every time I open the web page.  I don't know if others have that experience and I think I've seen instances where that isn't necessary, but you may find it so, based on my experience.

Once I had that problem and I found the button to switch by pressing
tab+space bar and then tab or shift+tab to find the button to switch
back to  basic html.

I switched to standard mode so I could try to delete thousands of old
emails.  Once I was done with that I tried to switch back to basic mode but
couldn't find the place to do so.  How do we do this using NVDA?  There
doesn't seem to be anything that NVDA can see to do this.


Thanks.
